A development of fruit builds with various conserves, chewy plums and damsons, Bramley apples and calvados and a vinous character. The palate is quite smooth and of good body. There is a little barley sweetness with lemons and limes and orange zest, hints of oaked pepper with a coastal edge. The peat is supple with herbal notes and cut fennel. There are some exotic fruit notes. The finish is of reasonable length and very smooth.
